    That's not open quarters, those are ill fitting jackets. If you want that, ask any MTM program to make your jackets hips 2-3 inches smaller than your actual hip measurement. Too long fronts help, too.

    Thanks. I wasn't really sure what they were called.

    Sorry if I was a bit harsh. To be useful, this is an example of real open quarters, notice how they open below the bottom button (some tie is showing but I think it's because of the stance), and there are no signs of tightness or imbalance whatsoever:

    Unfortunately, I don't know where you can get this with online MTM, but a tailor should be able to re-cut the quarters on any jacket somewhat (starting from the bottom button/buttonhole).

    I don't live near where there is a good tailor who i can trust with this kind of work. Online mtm is my only option. Am going to ask kent wang to see if this is possiable. Or am going to ask to take an half to one inch of the hip measurement.

    Don't ask for measurements that don't fit! I was being a bit sarcastic there, sorry about that. Kent Wang is likely to do it, now that I think of it.
